DOST Calls for Research Proposals to Address National Priorities

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is urging researchers and research institutions to submit project proposals focusing on critical areas such as food security, improved transportation, affordable and clean energy, health care, education, social services, sound fiscal management, and bureaucratic efficiency.

The selected research proposals that will meet the criteria will be eligible for funding under the DOST Grants-in-Aid (DOST GIA) program. This initiative seeks to leverage the country’s scientific and technological capabilities to achieve sustainable economic growth and development. The program aims to strengthen participation, technology transfer, human resources development, information dissemination, advocacy, and linkages.

Researchers are encouraged to align their proposals with the DOST Strategic Plan for 2023–2028 to which revolves around four main pillars: human well-being, wealth creation, wealth protection, and sustainability.

Researchers can submit their proposals to various councils, including the National Research Council of the Philippines, the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development, the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Research and Development, and the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development.

The submission period for proposals is set from March 1 to March 15, 2024, offering researchers a window to contribute innovative solutions to the country’s pressing challenges.
